Description

What makes a bride beautiful? Confidence that her hair, make-up, and dress reflect her personal style. In our opinion, the perfectly fitted and unique dress is the holy grail.

This custom gown was designed by Kathleen, in collaboration with the bride. A fitted bodice tops the soft gathers of the flowing skirt. The rayon fabric and lining are completely breathable, completely soft feeling, completely complimentary to the overall gown design. The lace ‘jacket’ is an off-the-rack remodel, opening in the back and secured with long, wrap around ties — it’s the finishing touch to this simply elegant wedding gown.

The bride thanked us when she picked up her finished gown. But then she called us after the wedding to pass on a message from the groom. “Tell Kathleen, thank you! Your dress is so beautiful and I really, really like it!” he said. Blew. Us. Away.


Need a gown? Whether you come to us in person or work with us from afar ...

By nature, of a custom gown requires a special touch, skills and experience. What is the bride’s style and taste? What is flattering? How will the dress feel and move during the wedding ceremony, during the reception? We listen and then design. At each fitting, we listen again for the bride’s reaction and input. This gown is just one example of the perfect dress for the individual bride.

We apply the same special touch, skills and experience to ‘remodeled’ gowns too! Frequently brides comes to us with ready made dresses. A dress that just spoke to her! Maybe she loved the neckline, or the train, the way it buttons down the back, or that it was a terrific bargain. We help her sculpt the dress into the dress of her dreams. Take it in here; let it out there. Or, for more involved gowns — remove the sleeves, make it plunge in the back, add a beaded waist. The possibilities are endless!

Can't come to us? We've worked with clients all over the world! We walk clients through the measurement process, choosing fabrics, provide photos, etc., throughout the entire process.

(Custom gown and remodeled gown costs vary depending on fabric, design, and amount of alterations; shipping will be calculated at time of purchase.)

Returns & exchanges

All sales are final, unless you and I have agreed to some sort of trial arrangement BEFORE your purchase. With custom-made garments, particularly custom garments that are created from a distance (without on-the-body fittings), there is always at least some chance that you may desire some sort of alteration after you actually try on your finished garment. If, after you try on your custom-made garment, you decide that you'd like it to be longer or shorter or looser or tighter (or ANY other change!), you will have to have your local dry cleaner or alterationist make that alteration for you.

I do want you to LOVE your KathleenTemple, Tailor garments, of course. I invite you to bring ANY concerns or dissatisfaction regarding your KathleenTemple, Tailor purchase to me at any time. If you are not happy with our transaction, I will want to make it right with you!

Shipping policies

I will ship your KathleenTemple, Tailor purchase by USPostalService, priority mail, with delivery confirmation and insurance. I will usually be able to ship your custom order to you within a few weeks; let's talk about your timing needs. I would certainly contact you if I foresee any delay as I am working on your custom garment(s).

If you are ordering an item that is already created, not a custom item, I can usually ship within one day! I have some garments ready to ship in my other etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/kathleenmeetsmorgan

I welcome collaboration, trades, and bartering with other etsy-ers. I would LOVE it!
